This unique atlas of the human brain correlates studies of post mortem tissue with the in situ, cross-sectional brain and MRIs of the same brain in situ with in vivo images from normal volunteers. This atlas contains a series of maps, each featuring different aspects of brain morphology and topography and is divided into two sections: the Topographic and Topometric Atlas and the Myeloarchitectonic Atlas.
The Topographic and Topometric atlas presents the surface anatomy of the brain over a topometric grid, together with corresponding in situ sections of the entire head, placed on stereotaxic grids in order to emphasize the brain. The part of the atlas is further divided into three sections: the Horizontal, the Coronal, and the Sagittal.
The Myeloarchitectonic atlas presents 69 myelin-stained sections cut perpendicular to the intercommissural line depicting mainly subcortical structures. Each plate has corresponding schematic diagrams defining position, extent, and relationship of nuclei and pathways of the forebrain and mesencephalon.
